La MaMa Galleria is on the Move

 Secrecy, oil on canvas, 50" x 50", ND

New for the 2014-2015 Season, the La MaMa Galleria is moving to a new location: 47 Great Jones Street, between Bowery and Lafayette Street.

The first show of the new season and the very first show in the new space will be Lucero Gonzalez Jameson: Angelus Novus. Curated by Raul Zamudio, this solo exhibition culls its title from a Paul Klee print that was once in the collection of the philosopher and writer Walter Benjamin. Similar to how Benjamin used the work as metaphor about the "angel of history" looking backward and the present piling up before it as "wreckage," the exhibition explores dichotomies of life/death, history/myth, and self/other and consists of painting, sculpture and video.  Opening Reception will be October 16th, from 6 to 8pm.
